Exercise causes (and worsens) arterial calcification

A great new study sent to me by one of my blog’s readers. It will more than likely cause a lot of controversy, despite its findings having a very simple explanation. Namely, chronic exercise increases baseline cortisol and over time, cortisol (acting through the aldosterone/mineralocorticoid receptor) causes vascular calcification. High aldosterone, caused by chronic salt … Read more

PUFA required for periodontal disease, aspirin may help

It is common knowledge even among mainstream dentists that periodontal disease is caused by bacteria accumulating under the gums, which over time leads to chronic inflammation and thus destruction of both gum tissue and the alveolar/jaw bone underneath the gums. Another “new” discover is that microbiome overgrowth (and thus endotoxin/LPS production) is also involved and … Read more

Simple saline solution stops SARS-CoV-2…and maybe all viruses?

More news adding to the evidence that COVID-19 and its associated virus are little more than a media circus, at least when it comes to the gauging the pandemic’s true danger to our health. We already have at least two amazing studies showing vitamins D/E can not only stop/treat COVID-19, but are also at least … Read more

Lowering/blocking serotonin is therapeutic for cancer

One of the few studies that is brave enough to point the finger directly at serotonin as a tumor-promoter. Mainstream medicine has acknowledged that serotonin has a growth-promoting effects, but only in one specific tumor – carcinoid syndrome – and refuses to admit that the same growth-promoting mechanisms may manifest in other tumor types as … Read more

SSRI drugs decrease androgens / progestogens, increase estrogens

As hard as it is to believe, this is the actual title of the study – i.e. SSRI drugs are bonafide endocrine disruptors. As it turns out, all of the six most-prescribed SSRI drugs the study looked at behaved not only as inhibitors of gonadal androgen synthesis (e.g. testosterone, DHT), but also adrenal androgens (DHEA) … Read more

For most individuals, the risks of keto diets outweigh the benefits

The title is the actual conclusion of the study, in the authors’ own words. Among the diseases they claim keto diets cause are colon cancer, CVD, kidney disease, liver disease, Alzheimer Disease (AD) and…diabetes! If there is one disease keto diets are supposed to help with preventing and even treating, that is diabetes. The very … Read more

Vitamins D and E – the Taliban in the COVID-19 war

Despite the massive censorship all over the Internet, there have been plenty of articles and studies on vitamin D and its role in COVID-19. Several studies reported that at least 9 in 10 of hospitalized patients have severe vitamin D deficiency. In addition, a few small studies demonstrated that high-dose vitamin D may ameliorate COVID-19 … Read more

Endotoxin (LPS) causes rheumatoid arthritis…and COVID-19

A great new study, which is perhaps the first to directly point the finger at endotoxin as perhaps the main cause of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA is an “autoimmune” condition and not only shares symptoms with other similar conditions such as Lupus, psoriasis, MS, etc, but now all of them are considered officially to be … Read more

Protein and saturated fats beneficial, PUFA detrimental for thyroid

A good new study, which again confirms that saturated fat is anything but detrimental to our health. Most of the studies until now demonstrating improved thyroid function from saturated fat used coconut oil, and that has led to attacks from mainstream medicine that this pro-thyroid and healthy effect is unique to the coconut oil due … Read more

Achilles heel of cancer discovered – its lack of CO2

Several years ago I posted about a study demonstrating that an Achilles heel of cancer had been found – i.e. its addiction to fat (not glucose, as doctors and media continue to mindlessly parrot). https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/805681 As my readers know from my other posts and various podcasts, excessive fatty acid oxidation (FAO) translates into lower CO2 … Read more
